I studied for my PhD in Geomicrobiology at the UK Centre for Astrobiology, University of Edinburgh. While there, I studied microbial-rock interactions in eroding shale cliffs on the North Yorkshire coastline. But on the side, I helped to set up the 500-year microbiology experiment, a project aimed to quantify the longevity of microorganisms over hundred-year time scales. Currently, I am a post-doctoral research associate at the Institute of Evolutionary Biology, investigating the response of Southern Ocean diatoms to global change.
